Things Muni would never do: beer tram

Who cares about the many bars near Muni Metro stops when you’re enjoying a beer from inside the Muni Metro vehicle?
That dream is a reality for residents of Nagasaki, Japan.
Once a year for the last 20 years, a private company has run a tram along city tracks, offering its passengers drinks both alcoholic and non.
With counter seats facing the windows, passengers are allowed to drink all they want from a range of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, and even enjoy a meal. The car will run the Nagasaki city tracks once a day until Sept. 20.
Since the streetcar fleet offering a “refreshing beer” debuted more than 20 years ago, the service has grown in popularity, prompting the firm to extend the run by 20 days.
A beer would surely help during those insufferable Metro tunnel delays. But I guess we just can’t have nice things?
